This class builds upon level-1 offering extensions to the learning environment by meeting in different locations in and around Buncombe County.
We review and focus on the CGC test items from the CGC Prep class and the CGCU test items below. At times people take this class several times because it is fun watching their dog learn and review important aspects of life. Everyone taking this class may be at different levels of understanding when it comes to the CGC items. Know that we will review and help you through all aspects with Schooling Model in mind.
